HOYT, Kansas (WIBW) -- A blown tire quickly escalated into a semi-truck fire Monday afternoon near Hoyt.

It happened near the 94th and North 75 Highway. Emergency officials say the truck's tire blew out. The driver pulled over and spotted flames coming from the tire.

The driver tried to get the fire with multiple extinguishers.

Other big rig drivers stopped and helped to unhook the tractor from the trailer - so it was not damaged.

The truck was carrying a load of old asphalt millings.
